The headaches are gone from the first few days of liquid diet but it still pretty much sucks! LOL I'm hungry all the time. Seems like I can't get enough Water to fill me up and quench my thirst. Lots of bathroom breaks! On a positive note, I've been losing almost 2 lbs a day so that's going to get me to my goal. Four days down, nine to go! I made myself a calendar to check off the milestones. That helps when you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I will try to post a pic of it. It is taking me through August to Labor Day when I go back to regular diet, the Ed Sheeran concert, and a trip to Asheville, NC! Having lots to look forward to makes the liquid diet bearable! 🙂

That is a neat calendar! I didn't have to do but 1 day of liquid diet before surgery. Just that 1 say was hard enough! I applaud your determination! !! We are all fighters here. Fighting to regain our healthy and mobility. We will stay strong and endure. You can do it!! Having those events to look forward to really help. I am going to be 58 in November and I want a pair of cowboy boots! I have not worn boots in 15+ years. I am also going to see my sisters for Christmas (they live in Las Vegas) I hope to blow them away when I come off the plane!!!. I will be playing "Mustang sally" as I do my Sandra Bullock walk from miss congeniality!! [emoji16][emoji16][emoji16][emoji16][emoji16][emoji16][emoji16][emoji16]

Oh my gosh that's hilarious… I can just imagine it! You go girl!

I'm 41 and already purchased my ticket to visit my sister and nine nieces and nephews - they are young but will probably flip out when they see me in December. And I'm kind of excited about that!

Hey my July peeps! I am doing good! I been walking and drinking sips. Got out of surgery and in room at 11:00am. Doc said I had a lot of scarring from my previous surgeries and some herinas. We will fix them after a drop 60lbs. Hoping to make that by end of the year.
I am surprised how good I feel. No drain. No catheter and just started liquid loratab.
Hope all of you are doing well.
We all sitting on the losers bench, ,!!! Ya,hoooooooo!!

Tomorrow two weeks post op sleeve and hiatal hernia repair. My left abdomen is still swollen near one of the seven incisions, but it isn't red or infected. It is still painful to stand or walk for more than, say, 10 minutes. I don't know when I will be able to wear pants or anything around my waist. I don't work, but know I wouldn't be able to go back to work yet. Just starting to feel my strength back.... still taking a nap every afternoon.
